Good

Data for the period 2010-2019 show a positive trend in the estimated final energy consumption in households. The share of households that estimated their energy consumption as low or very low increased by 8 percentage points from 2010 to 2019. From 2011 to 2019, the share of households considering more efficient energy consumption also increased. The indicator also shows a significant potential for reductions in final energy consumption in households – less than three quarters of households estimated energy consumption in their home in 2019 as moderate, or high to very high.

Neutral

The declarative attitude of Slovenian households towards the environment and efficient energy use is changing positively, while the relationship between the ecological awareness and unawareness of households remains unchanged. There is a considerable potential for reducing final energy consumption in households through the development of environmentally-oriented behaviour, or through positive practice in the use of energy.

Bad

In 2019, over three quarters of households surveyed in Slovenia considered climate change a very serious problem. Between 2008 and 2019, the share of these households in Slovenia decreased by 13 percentage points. There has also been a negative trend in agreeing with statements, such as "Human activity contributes most to climate change" or "Climate action must be taken immediately". According to the surveyed households, the major source of the greenhouse gases in Slovenia are industry and transport.

Neutral

The European Community has met its commitments under the first period of the Kyoto Protocol, as total emissions (excluding the sinks) in the period 2008-2012 were around 19% lower than in the base year.  By imposing the maximum level of allowed sinks, Slovenia has exceeded the 2012 target by about 3%.

In 2018, Slovenian GHG emissions increased by 0.8% compared to 2017. Therefore, Slovenia is on a good track to achieve the EU goal, as non-ETS GHG emissions in 2018 were about 10% below the allocated emissions for 2017.

Bad

Temperature in Slovenia increases faster than global average. Increase in the annual average temperature is most evident in last three decades. Warming of atmosphere will continue according to the climate change projections. The result of warming is an increase in sea level (due to melting of glaciers), increase in level of the greenhouse gases in atmosphere (contributes to warming), and many extreme weather and climate events (like floods, droughts, hail and heavy wind), what will result in the quality of our lives.

Bad

The quick rate of retreat of the Triglav Glacier, which began in the second half of the 20thcentury, further accelerated till the beginning of the 21st century. Due to increasing intensity of ice thinning, outcropping rocks began to emerge in the middle of the glacier, which disintegrated into two parts in 1992. In the last part of the first decade of the 21st century, the glacier has been retreating at a slower rate. The last major recession of the glacier was registered after the above average hot summer of 2003.

Neutral

The length of the annual growing season is increasing almost everywhere in Europe, mostly in Eastern and Northern part, and less in Western Europe, the Mediterranean and in southern Europe. In Slovenia, the length of the annual growing season is increasing, especially since the mid-1990s. According to projections, the duration of the annual growing season throughout Europe will increase in the future.

Bad

Temperature observations show increasing trend of maximum and minimum absolute temperature in between 1961 and 2018, reflecting a global warming. Number of hot days is increasing, including the frequency of extreme hot days with daily maximum temperature above 35 °C. Number of days with temperature below zero show a decline.
